Lince Dorado appeared on the "Two Man Power Trip Of Wrestling" podcast this week to talk about what he's been up to since he's left the WWE, as well as why he asked for his release from the company.
Lince Dorado talking about what he’s up to since leaving WWE:
"I'm doing a lot of things," Dorado said. "I'm writing books. I have four books that I'm currently writing, two children's books and two wrestling inspired books, one being an auto and one being kind of like a satire of what I thought wrestling is, from my point of view. So it's going to be pretty funny when that comes out."
"I'm also producing a comic book, a children's graphic novel. I'll be producing some children's cartoon shows, and some mini films that I'm working on for myself, creatively," he continued.
"I'm hoping to be opening up a school pretty soon, a Lucha Libre school. I got a lot of things. I have a lot of ambition."
Dorado on why he asked for his release:
"When we asked for our release in September or October, I was like, man, I don't really have a plan. But I know I've been poor, I've been homeless, I've been broke, I'll be fine," Dorado shared.
"I've always been fine. I look forward to all the challenges in my life. So this new adventure of leaving something that I was so comfortable in needed to be done for me personally. I needed to leave, and yeah, I was looking forward to it. I was looking forward to being my own boss, being creative, saying things how I wanted to say it, being how I wanted to be, dressing how I wanted to dress, and representing Lucha Libre how I wanted to represent it."
"I want to put my flavor on it. That's why I had asked for my release. I just felt like I was complacent. I felt like I was just floating. I wasn't progressing creatively. I just didn't like my position. I just needed a change. As much as it's scary, and as much as I left how much money on the table, and how much time I had left on my contract, it wasn't worth it to me. I needed that peace of mind of being free and being creatively free."
Other topics brought up include the Cruiserweight Classic, 205 Live, Lucha House Party, working for Vince McMahon, NXT, Triple H, and the culture of the Performance Center.
